Ever want to embed a document easily on a website? What about write your own book and share it online? Scribd is a free service that allows you easily to upload a document and share it in book form. Simply upload your document from your computer, Dropbox or Google Drive and Scribd. does the rest.  Not only can you share your writing you can also see how many people have viewed your document and get feedback.  Create your classroom handbook and embed it on your website for parents or have students create ebooks they can share with an authentic audience. Below is an example of how I uploaded a PDF to Scribd and turned it into an ebook, the process was super simple and it was free.

Blended learning can mean many different things, but the fact is a number of teachers are blending in their classrooms and not even realizing it.  Combining face to face instruction with online learning to provide rich learning opportunities for students is really what blended learning is all about.  There are so many tools you can use with students to provide instruction beyond the classroom and the restraints of time. Because there are so many tools it can be hard to determine which you should use, recently I have created a blended learning handbook to outline what I think to be the best resources.  I wanted to share this book with all of you as a guide for starting your adventure in blending.  Its nothing fancy, but you may find it useful.  Let me know what you think.
